Popular Destinations With Mercury Holidays
Mercury offers package holidays to a wide variety of destinations both in Europe and around the world. We've picked a couple of our favourite destinations with Mercury below:
Cyprus is definitely one of the brand's most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Take a look at the beach destinations in and around Paphos and Larnaca with plenty of hotel accommodation options available.
Discover Malta and combine the Mediterranean sunshine with the culture and history of this fantastic island. Wander the little marinas and ports to find your favourite seaside restaurant for dinner after a long day by the pool.
The beautiful island of Sri Lanka is just waiting to be explored with the Indian Ocean at your doorstep. Beach resorts twinned with national parks and rainforests, make this a holiday to remember. Walk the trails, tour the temples and watch the wildlife on a stunning escape to Sri Lanka.
As the most popular holiday destination in Indonesia, Bali has long had a reputation as the ideal destination for a tropical beach escape. Whether you prefer to be waited on hand an foot in Sanur Beach, or head up into the rainforest around Ubud for a more peaceful stay, it's hard not to come back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
For a truly unforgettable experience, a trip to Japan will play with the mind and the senses. From the bright lights and hustle and bustle of Tokyo and Osaka, to the rural retreats of Mt Fuji and Okinawa, you'll need more than just 7 nights to get to grips with this exciting destination.
The gorgeous city of Marrakech in Morocco is the ideal winter sun and city break destination. Less than four hours flight from the UK, Marrakech is home to both the traditional riads and sprawling spa hotels. Whether you prefer to be in the heart of the Medina, close to the souks, sights and sounds, or you'd rather be on the outskirts of the city centre with a swimming pool or two, amongst lush surroudings, there's an accommodation option for everyone.
Why not combine a city break with a beach holiday? Take a look at Dubai as one top destination, particularly if you're looking for some winter sun. While flights can be a bit more expensive than the low cost options of travel to Europe, with so many luxury hotels, there are often some fantastically cheap deals on accommodation available. Check out hotels in and around Jumeirah beach to take advantage of enjoying both the beach and the city.
The lesser know city and holiday destination in the Middle East, Abu Dhabi holidays are perhaps a little less "showy" than Dubai. Here you'll still find plenty to do, like Yas Island with Ferrari World and Warner Bros Studios, as well as both budget friendly and gorgeously luxurious hotels like the Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island, set on a beautiful sandy beach.
Fly Drive & Escorted Tours
Mercury Holidays is well known for its worldwide escorted tours. From South America to Asia, these few days to several week long tours, both escorted and self-guided fly drives, allow holidaymakers to discover somewhere new and truly incredible, as well as enjoy local traditions and excursions. They can also be the perfect option for solo travellers looking to experience more of the world in a safe and comfortable way, while making new friends along the way.
Whether you want to explore the northern wonders or head down to the southern beaches, escorted tours of India are such an incredible way to discover the country. It's also a great way to meet likeminded people too.
New Zealand is such an incredible destination to discover and with so much to see and do, it's great to have the freedom of your own choice. That's why a fly-drive trip to New Zealand allows you to check out the towns, national parks and beaches that you want to. From the streets of Auckland to the vineyards of Marlborough.
As part of their large list of destinations, Nepal features in their walking tours section. A stunning place to discover by foot, Nepal treks incorporate Buddhist temples, national parks and the incredible landscape of the Himalayas.
River cruises are also a great holiday option to see more of Europe in a small but welcoming environment. These cruises float effortlessly along Europe's famous rivers, including the Rhone, Seine, Guadalquivir and even the waterways of Venice. These cruises offer all inclusive dining, modern, well-equipped cabins and a sun deck to make the most of the scenery as you float along with your favourite drink.
For those looking to book a Nile cruise, you can do so as part of a larger escorted tour package to Egypt, taking in the Giza Pyramids, Cairo tour and a cruise along the magnificent Nile river from Luxor.
